Nevada Fire Board Oversight Body

Established To:

Act as the custodian of the 2015 Nevada Wildland Fire Cohesive Strategy Summit’s Action Plan to ensure goal achievement and identify emerging topics. In 2015, the summit was held in Reno, Nevada and a report was produced that documented the intentions of the Cohesive Strategy moving forward. The recommendations of the report were followed and the Nevada Cohesive Strategy Action Plan was created and adopted by the Nevada Fire Board in 2016.

This oversight body acts as an “advisory” body and is charged with taking the NV Cohesive Strategy Summit report and its Action Steps, ensuring that goal achievement is accomplished and monitoring emerging topics through the Nevada Fire Board.  This body should meet annually or as needed to monitor progress, develop issue resolution, address emerging issues and report out.  They shall also determine the re-occurrence of the NV Cohesive Strategy Summit process.
